Ghost of Tsushima released on July 17 after months of anticipation, with rave reviews and a great reception online to Sucker Punch Productions’ latest effort.

The action-adventure game revolves around Jin Sakai, one of the last remaining samurai on Tsushima Island during the first Mongol invasion of Japan in 1274, featuring an open-world and multiple side quests along the way.

One thing that is dragging players away from the core gameplay, though, is the incredible aesthetics of the game, and the best way of showing this off is in photo mode.

Photo mode in Ghost of Tsushima can provide some exquisite images.

Like many other games, Ghost of Tsushima’s photo mode provides an opportunity to show off your achievements to the world, but also to capture some of the more picturesque scenes you stumble upon.

There are some beautiful areas in Tsushima, such as the Omi Monastery or around the Field of the Equinox Flower, but it’s not enough to simply go there and grab a screenshot; you can actually use photo mode to make it look even better.

Here’s how to use Ghost of Tsushima’s photo mode, and get the best quality pictures in the game:

  1. Find a setting that you want to take a photo of and position Jin accordingly.
  2. Hit right on the D-Pad to open photo mode.
  3. Adjust the settings, including type of shot, music (for a video, if desired), and more to get the perfect shot — trial and error is key here.
  4. Take a screenshot using the PS4’s share button.
  5. Press right on the D-Pad again to close photo mode.

You can take tracking shots in Ghost of Tsushima’s photo mode, as well as fantastic stills.

And that’s it! It’s a relatively pain-free process, but one that you can spend as much time on as you want, and you can easily find time flies by while you’re setting up the perfect shot.

As well as what’s mentioned above, you can also change Jin’s emotion and facial expressions, the wind direction, lighting, color hues and more, so the possibilities are endless with Ghost of Tsushima’s photo mode.

So jump into Tsushima Island and see what you can come up with — you might just surprise yourself with your photography skills.

A Pokemon Sword & Shield leaker claims to have discovered major Crown Tundra data files in the Home app. The leak allegedly reveals how long it takes to beat the DLC, Shiny variants, and even two new Legendary horse monsters that can be fused.

In a first for the Pokemon series, Game Freak opted out of making a third game for its eighth gen title Sword & Shield in favor of an Expansion Pass instead. On October 22, the RPG gets it second major DLC, The Crown Tundra.

However just days before the add-on is set to launch, leakers have claimed to have discovered a ton of features and information about the upcoming content. From Shiny Legendary variants to a new fusion ‘mon, here is everything that was allegedly leaked.

Pokemon Crown Tundra content “leaked” online

On October 20, leak account ‘CentroLeaks’ posted what they claim is Crown Tundra information datamined from the Pokemon Home app. “Yes, it’s happening. Yes, it’s time to abandon the Internet,” they tweeted.

The leaker then revealed that the RPG will be getting two new horse Legendaries that are Ghost and Ice type, which can fuse with Crown Tundra’s Legendary, Calyrex.

Also included in the image were the Shiny variants of the game’s mythical creatures, including the Galarian bird trio Zapdos, Articuno, and Moltres. Interestingly, their colors seem to be that of their original Gen I forms.

Centro Leaks clarified that the Legendary horse’s forms can be chosen similar to Isle of Armor’s Urshifu. “You can choose a horse, similarly to how you choose a tower for Urshifu.”

The tweet also stated that Ultra Beasts introduced in Gen VII’s Sun & Moon will also make its return. “Ultra Beasts are catchable in the post-game.” According to the dataminers, the DLC can be allegedly be beaten in around four hours.

According to the dataminers, the new Legendary horses are called Glastrier and Spectrier. The Ice-type is described as “having tremendous physical strength, and the mask of ice covering its face is 100 times harder than diamond.” Its special move is called Chilling Neigh and boosts its attack stat each time it knocks a Pokemon out.

The Ghost-type is described as “dashing through the night, Spectrier absorbs the life-force of sleeping creatures. It craves silence and solitude.” Its signature move is named Grim Neigh and boosts its Sp. Atk stat when knocking out an opponent.

If that wasn’t exciting enough, as mentioned above, both these creatures can allegedly fuse with Calyrex to make a powerful new forms called Ice Rider and Shadow Rider. The duo have devastating new attacks when combined.

Of course it goes without saying, but take all leaks with a major grain of salt. However, major data has been found before in the Home App, so it’s not too far fetched. Either way, we will find out very soon just how correct this info is.
